The SLA has 22 regional branches across the UK which provide localised support and training for members. These networks are a hugely important part of SLA membership – allowing all members to engage with local issues and find local colleagues.
We have created a toolkit for branch committee members, covering information such as branch stationery, guidance notes and sample documents for you to use. This is also available as an Online Branch Toolkit (you will need to be logged in as a member).
Details of each branch are given on the linked pages below. If there is no branch in your area and you would like information about starting one, please contact the SLA office on 01793 530166or by emailing [email protected]
Examples of what our branches do...
- Networking days, which can include with local librarians, speakers and participating in workshops about school library issues.
- Training and discussions on best practice
- Book sales
- Sharing favourite reads
